Texas softball team starts fall ball with sweep

Posted October 26th, 2017


The Longhorns softball team took two wins to start the fall softball season Wednesday night. Texas topped Blinn College 2-1 before it defeated St. Edward’s 8-0.

“Today is effectively a glorified practice day,” Texas head coach Connie Clark said. “We don’t say or take that lightly by any means as it’s a privilege to have someone to play against wearing different shirts as opposed to inter-squading. We just wanted (our team) to work on getting their timing and swings down tonight.”

The Texas hitters managed six hits against Blinn, led by Tuesday DerMargosian who went 2-for-3 with an RBI.


Janae Jefferson was 1-for-1, scoring both runs for the Longhorns. She stole three bases in the contest.

Erica Wright earned the win as she pitched three innings while allowing a run on three hits. She struck out six.

In the second game, the Longhorns had a better time at the plate, amassing 11 hits to score eight runs.

MK Tedder, a freshman infielder, was 1-for-4 with a home run.

Cierra Schick was 3-for-3 with two RBIs. Bekah Alcozer also drove in two runs as she went 1-for-2 with a double.

Kaitlyn Washington was 2-for-4 with an RBI. She had an RBI against Blinn as well.

DerMargosian, Taylor Ellsworth, Kristen Clark and Jefferson each had a hit. Clark had an RBI as well.

Brooke Bolinger, Chloe Romero and Clark combined for the shutout.
